How to apply for on campus Housing Spring 2018

The application for undergraduate students currently studying abroad and current on-campus students applying for a hall change or float for single opens on Monday, October 16th at 12:00 p.m. This application will close at 12:00 p.m. on Monday, October 30th. 

Late Applications

Late applications for Interhall Transfers and Float for Single will not be accepted. After October 30th at noon (Eastern time), any students who are currently studying abroad and wish to live on campus will complete the Wait List application and housing cannot be guaranteed. 

Cancelled Housing Contracts

Students currently abroad who cancel their housing contract after the Office of Housing has sent their room assignment will be charged a $500 cancellation fee.

Students who currently live on campus who cancel their spring housing contract to move off campus will be charged a $500 cancellation fee.

Cancellation fees are not assessed for students who cancel their housing contracts to transfer, withdraw, or study abroad.

Interhall Transfer Application

Through this process, students are requesting to transfer from one hall to another hall. Submitting an application does not guarantee that a transfer will be granted.  To transfer halls, students must discuss their desire to move with both the Rector from their current hall and their potential future Rector no later than October 30th. Applications will not be considered if students do not meet with both of these Rectors. After the application period closes, each Rector will review applications for their hall and will determine whether or not a request will be granted. These decisions will be made based upon anticipated space in the hall and occupancy numbers. Rectors will communicate to students if their application for transfer has been accepted or not by November 3rd. 

If granted approval, students will need to communicate with their new Rector to determine the best date to move your belongings. 

Students may submit only one transfer request for one specific hall.  Applications may not be withdrawn after approval has been granted. Students may not submit an Interhall Transfer Application and a Float for a Single Application. 

The application will be available until October 30th at noon; late applications will not be accepted.

Float for a Single Application

The Float for a Single process allows students the opportunity to request a single room on campus. In this process, students are not able to specify a building, but rather to indicate that they are interested in moving to a single room, no matter the location. Participants will receive a lottery number that is specific to the float process. The lottery number determines the order in which students are assigned when/if a single room becomes available. Applications are processed as (and if) space becomes available. Students in this process are assigned based upon their lottery number. Students will receive notification of their lottery number on November 10 and will receive their assignment no later than November 29. These assignments are not made until after special accommodations are made. 

Submitting an application in no way guarantees nor implies availability of a single room assignment. The Office of Housing is unable to predict the exact number of timing or rooms available for these assignments. Applicants that are not assigned a single room will be assigned to a space in a multi-occupancy room. The assignment will be based upon space available at the time of the assignment and no specific building is guaranteed. 

Requests for Special Accommodations

Students who are in need of special housing accommodations must be in communication with the Office of Disability Services regarding these requests. All requests must be submitted by November 1st to the Sara Bea Disability Services Office in order to be considered for the Spring semester. Disability Services will communicate with the Office of Housing regarding students who need accommodations prior to making assignments. For requests submitted after November 1st, we cannot guarantee that appropriate space will be available.
